How can you not write, talk and sing the praises of the dominant defences we witnessed during Week 4 of the 2014 season?Heres a few statistical gems that jumped out from a week where the attention turned from great throws, catches and runs to bone-crushing hits, interceptions and stifling defensive play.A total of nine touchdowns were scored during Week 4, as opposed to an average of just over 18 in the first three weeks of the season. Remember, one of those nine touchdowns was scored by the defence - thats when Odell Willis had a pick-six to open the scoring for the week. That was six minutes and 17 seconds into the first game of the week. From there, only eight offensive touchdowns for the rest of the week.Thank goodness special teams and our kickers were on point for the most part of Week 4. In total, the legs of the CFL were 20 of 23 or 87 per cent on the week, but even that portion of the game was marred by a botched last-minute field goal attempt by Hamilton. Costly!The defences were so strong in Week 4 that they lowered the average total scoring by 17.9 points per game, from 49.7 the first three weeks to 31.8 in Week 4.What is going on and whos causing all these problems for the offences around the league?Crazy fact of the week - Six of the nine teams in the CFL have new defensive coordinators and five of the nine have new offensive coordinators.Typically, defences will start out hot and further ahead of the offences as training camp ends. The thinking here is that offensive play is more about timing, working in unison, and it takes longer to come together than the reaction-based defensive schemes. I say hold on, partner. Thats not what Im seeing these days. What Im watching is more diversified defensive schemes that are every bit as difficult to perfect. Schemes that require as much, if not more, time to master all the necessary subtleties needed in order to be consistently successful.Im seeing defences that are not relying solely on reaction, but that are taking the upper hand and dictating to the offences.This is the classic and constant game of chess that has been played out since the genesis of football. Last week, the defence had the offence on its heels, stymied and confused. They had the offence in protect mode and retreating.Offensively speaking, you cannot play this way and expect to succeed. The challenge is to flip the script and be aggressive and attack. You must put the defence on its heels and in a retreat mode. Offences must be offensive and make defences be defensive! They must dictate to the defence the tempo of the game, impose their will, rhythm and flow as to how the game is going to be played. Easier said than done, yes, but especially when you are meshing new systems with young signal callers.This past week, we saw some young quarterbacks on their heels, flustered and with their eyes not right. Thats when the quarterbacks eyes are not on their reads or indicators and going through their progressions. Their eyes are darting all over the place and not down field, but fixated on defenders in their face, closing ground and fast. Theyre feeling pressure when its not there, moving out of a perfectly fine throwing lane or pocket because theyre not locked in. Thats usually about the time when receivers are running free, down field, wide open while the quarterbacks are seeing ghosts, getting happy feet and not able to deliver the ball or make that throw that could stop the insanity and pressure altogether.This week, the defensive pressure, ability to cover and schemes all played a huge part in causing this to happen. The defence dictated and overwhelmingly won Week 4s chess match.The video tells the truth or, as they say, "The eye in the sky does not lie."Veteran Kevin Glenn capitalized on a solid Montreal defence by attacking, staying focused and delivering while under pressure.Ricky Ray had his chances down field. He missed once on a big play himself and on a couple other big play opportunities, he did not get the help needed on the other end.Mike Reilly hung tough in the pocket and found the big play on a busted assignment in the Winnipeg secondary. Miraculously, on several occasions, the tough-as-nails quarterback did his impersonation of Houdini and escaped extreme pressure, piling up 96 yards rushing, making the difference in that ball game.Other than that, Bo-Levi Mitchell, even in victory, was not sharp and missed on several plays. Remember the only offensive touchdown in that contest came on a reverse pass that went bad. Brad "Sinopoli Money" made something out of nothing and scored on a brilliant run for his first-ever CFL touchdown.Henry Burris found a way to win, but, never found the end zone. He should have found the end zone at least once, but thats another story. Henry kept his poise, under pressure, and delivered a big play in the end when the game was on the line. Torontos defence did everything they could, holding Ottawa to six field goals! Congratulations to the Ottawa Redblacks for finding a way to win on a special night in the nations capital.The other quarterbacks have some work to do and, lets just say, they struggled against some great defensive performances that dominated Week 4.Crazy stat of Week 4: the Eastern division is 0-9 on the road this season, including 0-8 on the road vs. Western teams! Russ Grimm Jersey . Vincent Lamar Carter is no longer the lean, athletic dynamo who dazzled Raptors fans with eye-popping dunks that posterized even the leagues best defenders. DeAngelo Hall Jersey .com) - Coming off a pair of tough losses last week, the Syracuse Orange will try to put an end to their first losing skid of the season when they pay a visit to the Maryland Terrapins at the Comcast Center on Monday night in Atlantic Coast Conference action. http://www.theredskinsprostore.com/Authentic_Ziggy-Hood_Redskins_Jersey/.Y. - Matt Harvey wants to make sure hes on the mound in late October — if the New York Mets get there for the first time since 2006. Rob Kelley Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline isnt that far away and teams will be making decisions on whether to buy, sell and decide which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value. Vernon Davis Jersey .C. -- Authorities say the brother of Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White has been shot and killed outside a South Carolina nightclub.DALLAS -- The Los Angeles Clippers have not tired of inflicting fourth-quarter pain on the Dallas Mavericks. The Clippers rallied from a 10-point deficit in the final period to beat the Mavericks 109-103 on Thursday night. Los Angeles has won all three meetings thus far, with second-half rallies in each game. Each meeting has also featured plenty of emotion. On Thursday, the teams combined for six technical fouls charged to players on the floor, three on each team. "We need to start playing like that more often, to tell you the truth," Chris Paul said after leading Los Angeles with 31 points, a night after going 0 for 12 in a two-point loss in New Orleans. "We knew it was going to be a playoff-type game. Theyre not just playing for their playoff lives; were trying to gear up for the playoffs, too." The Clippers got double-doubles from Blake Griffin (18 points, 13 rebounds) and DeAndre Jordan (16 points, 15 rebounds). Los Angeles maintained its one-game lead over Houston for third place in the Western Conference. Vince Carter scored 23 points off the bench for the Mavericks, going 4 for 5 on 3-pointers. Dirk Nowitzki had 21 points but only two in the fourth quarter. "Its tough. Its very frustrating," Carter said. "But we fought like hell to give ourselves a chance to win, and thats all you can do." Samuel Dalembert was questionable going into the game for Dallas because of a stiff back. He started, played 22 minutes and led the Mavericks with 11 rebounds -- all in the first half. The loss dropped Dallas a half-game behind Phoenix and into ninth place in the tight race for the final playoff berths in the West. The score was tied at 81 going into the final period before the Mavericks ran off the first 10 points. Los Angeles chipped away and tied it at 101 on a drive by Griffin. Dallas then committed a backcourt violation when a pass from Nowitzki back to Jose Calderon near midcourt went astray. Griffin followed with a spinning runner to give the Clippers the lead for good at 103-101. Griffin was pleased with the defence that he played on Nowitzki, who was 7 for 15 from the floor. ";For the past how many years, everything Ive heard is the things I couldnt do," he said.dddddddddddd. "One of the many things I cant do is play defence. "I take pride in the things I cant do. I just use that as motivation." The Clippers victory Thursday was their least dramatic in the series so far. They outscored the Mavericks 16-2 down the stretch to win by seven points in the first meeting on Jan. 5. Twelve days later, they rallied from 17 points down to win by two. A shoving match broke out early in the third quarter after the Mavericks brought the ball into the forecourt. Paul pushed Dallas Shawn Marion, who knocked into the Clippers Matt Barnes while falling over the end line. Barnes and Marion then had words, and Barnes shoved Marion. Paul, Marion and Barnes were all assessed technical fouls. "I just think its been a heated battle," Barnes said. "They had us down in the fourth three times, and theyre playing for the playoffs." Clippers coach Doc Rivers noted his team responded after Wednesday nights last-minute loss to the depleted Pelicans. "You could see our guys were fresh," Rivers said. "In a joking way, we should have been fresh because we didnt use a lot (Wednesday) night." The Mavericks are 3-3 on a franchise-record, eight-game homestand, having opened the stretch in seventh place with a 1 1/2-game cushion on ninth-place Phoenix. "Its basically the next game becomes the most important game of the year," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "Thats just how it is going to be, every one down the stretch." The Mavericks will then close the season with five road games among their final seven. That includes one more game against the Clippers, at Staples Center on April 3. "We have one more chance," Calderon said. "Hopefully, next week maybe we can beat these guys." NOTES: The Clippers J.J. Redick, out since early February with a back injury, said he hopes to return before the end of the season. . Nowitzki, a 91.8 per cent shooter from the free throw line going into the game, was 6 for 10, equaling his most misses this season.
